The Dons looked set for a battling point at Cheltenham on Saturday until Jamie Cureton struck deep into stoppage time to snatch a 1-0 win for the hosts.

"They were gutted," said Ardley. "It is now a case of the staff and I picking them up off the floor and us bouncing back, something we have done so far this season.

Antwi has yet to play this season following a hernia operation.
